School Hours

School hours are from 8:50am- 3:15pm. Children are required at school no later than 8.40am in order that classes may commence at 8.50am sharp.

There are two bells in the morning. The first bell rings at 8.40am (where students get their bags and organise themselves to go into class) and the second rings at 8:50am (where students move into their classrooms for role call and classroom administration time). In the interests of your child’s safety, he/she should not arrive at school before 8.30am.

Due to Occupational Health and Safety issues, children may play on the adventure playground only during their play and lunch breaks.  It is at these times that there is teacher supervision designated specifically for this playing area.   Children and toddlers are not permitted on the adventure playground before and after school.

Student Lateness

Children who arrive late need to report to the school office to have their attendance registered and to collect a late pass before going to their classroom.

Repeated instances of lateness will be addressed formally via Principal and parent interviews and in some cases further referral to the Catholic Education Office.
